The Education Ministry is currently making arrangements to reopen schools for Grade 11, except in the isolated police areas including in Western Province (WP) on January 25, Education Minister Prof. G. L. Pieris said.

He said the decision was taken following the instructions and recommendations issued by the Health authorities.

Accordingly, no schools in the isolated police areas in the country will be opened on January 25, he said.
